Catalyst provides loan for workforce housing

FORT MYERS, Florida – In partnership with the Fort Myers Community Redevelopment Agency, Catalyst Community Capital closed loans with Outten Financial, LLC for the construction of two duplex projects in the MLK Area redevelopment district.

The transaction is part of an effort by the Fort Myers CRA to create and preserve much needed affordable housing in the area. As part of the loan requirements, the property will restrict rent limits for the next ten years to assist in meeting the growing demand for affordable housing in Fort Myers.

Outten Financial brings knowledge and expertise in the construction space, as well as an excellent feel for the wonderful potential of the MLK district. Catalyst looks forward to partnering with them on this and other projects that allow this community to meet the growing need of affordable housing.” Michael Maguire, COO of Catalyst remarked.
